This pandemic crisis facing our country and our world presents us, each of us, with an opportunity. To give first.
It is during crises that we show who we truly are. What we are made of. What we value.
And now we will be tested, to show our friends, colleagues, family members, neighbors, and fellow humans that we care.
As you watch the news, scroll through social media, and likely experience the anxiety and stress arising in so many of us, take a deep breath and try to identify what you can do to help others.
Even small steps can make a huge difference.
- Staying indoors and staying out of public places to help flatten the curve and slow the progression of this virus.
- Offering to pick up supplies for your older or infirm neighbors
- Taking calls with business professionals whom you might be able to advise or support through this challenging time
- Buying gift cards to the small businesses you want to support while they face closures
Find a small way to give to others. Each step adds up.
